What is the Voluntary Homework Club Scheme all about?
The Voluntary Homework Club Scheme is a scheme whereby UCC students volunteer to be placed in one of seven, city-centre second level schools to help Second Level students with their homework. It runs one afternoon per week for 2 hours a session, for 8 consecutive weeks in the term.
What is the Aim of the Voluntary Homework Club Scheme?
The aim of the Voluntary Tutoring Scheme is to provide academic help to 2nd level school students. It is envisaged that Tutors will provide additional academic support in school subjects which may prove difficult to students while doing their homework in a fun, social Homework Club environment. The UCC PLUS+ Programme aims to foster better relations between UCC and DEIS linked schools while encouraging 2nd level school students to consider onward progression to third level particularly where there is little tradition of progression onto higher education.
